So, minor intro here: I'm going to start trying to keep a somewhat steady blog, mostly to post deck ideas I have or card comboes I find interesting. I'd use the forums, but most of the people who frequent those are too competitive in nature and just don't understand why or how I find the certain interactions of the cards to be interesting. And usually try to rework the decklist to include every "meta staple" that's currently legal. While some of these decks may be good in a competitive setting, I create all my decks based around ideas that I find fun.
Of course, to really understand what I find fun, you have to know that I am a Timmy Johnny Vorthos. Which should tell you I like big creatures, comboes, and I admire cards for more than just their gameplay value (in this case, flavor; Vorthos...

Here is the format that I first thought Planechase would be like... then I read the rules and found out that I was wrong... so it's technically a homebrew of mine! Here goes.
Set up: Each player needs his or her own planar deck. You can do this by drafting decks, or having everyone build one at home (if they have the planes). They will need this deck to be shuffled, as well as whatever Magic Deck they want to play with. You will also need at least one Planar Die.
Playing: Invasion is a "flavour game". This means that if flavour says "no", you can't do it. What I mean by this is "Global effects" only have an affect on the plane that they happen on. There's no reason for an event on Mirrodin to effect Ravnica. Much the same, Planar...

Here's a format born from when I first pitched my homebrew Invasion.
Setup: Each player needs to either bring three planes, or a player needs to provide several planes (typically 3+ per player is good). Players then shuffle their Planar pile and set them down, working from the middle of the table, outward, so by the end you have a grid of planes. The last plane that each player puts down is where he or she starts off. Aside from that, each player needs his or her own deck.
Playing: Planar Collapse is a "flavour game". This means that if flavour says "no", you can't do it. What I mean by this is "Global effects" only have an affect on the plane that they happen on. There's no reason for an event on Mirrodin to effect Ravnica. Much the...

Schizo is played either by two players with multiple decks, or by several players. These players/decks are then put into teams. Teams share a life total and permanents, but not their libraries, hands, graveyards or turns.
A team's life total is 10 x N where N is the number of players on that team. Teams do not have to have an even number of players, but it is advised.
All team members have control over the team's permanents at the same time, and at all times (though they do not have ownership).
Players attack teams/life totals and planeswalkers, not individual players.
If a single player dies (be that due to milling etc), only that player dies, not the entire team.
Table Talk is not allowed.
Turn order moves from Player A on team one to Player...

I found this article on multiplayer during today's card preview article.
I had a conversation with a friend about "bad players" in multiplayer. A few of his concerns I think are pretty legitamate and would make the basis for a good article on multiplayer deckbuilding and etiquite.
Here are the highlights

The Coalition's march continues across the planes. By now, Mirrodin is firmly under control of the troops from Dominaria. The local Mirrans given freedom and weapons to join in the fight to drive off the final few Phyrexian holdouts. Only the Radix and the Seat of the Synod remain as realms of compleation - while the Radix has been under Phyrexian control for much of the war, the Seat has been hotly contested. The once huge Vedalken structure of knowledge and learning, reduced to little more than rubble.
A story much the same holds upon Dominaria itself. A couple of holdouts from the previous occupation persist. But cut off, but deaths are mounting, without reinforcement from their home plane, it is unlikely that the Phyrexian forces will be able to maintain...
